...smell my feet...

For Anna's first year Trick-or-Treating, she was a scarecrow. We went to two houses and then hung out with Daddy to help hand out candy.

Do I have to wear this hat?

One for you, two for me

Just like Daddy

Let's see, here's Chicago; just south of there is Kankakee, and a little farther south we'll find Danville If you know Arron, you know how much he loves maps. Seriously, one trip to Iowa we stopped at nearly every rest area to get maps. He claimed he was going to give them to his students.

Like father, like daughter...

Happy Birthday Anna!

For Anna's first birthday, we went to the aquarium! We started the day opening a couple presents from friends, then it was off to our grand adventure.

Oh! A new book!  Thanks Annette and kids!

Wow!  A Learn and Play Puppy!  Thanks Heather!

The aquarium was really neat, and the fish were so cool to look at. Anna loved it.

Some crazy looking fish

After lunch we saw the dolphin show!

Jump dolphins, jump!

Look at the dolphins!

The we saw the dolphins below water and the beluga whale and her calf. The light was really low and we couldn't use a flash (the fish didn't have sunglasses); we could have used Christina's tripod.

Here comes the penquin!

Once we got home, it was time for cake and presents!

Yay!  Presents!

Hey, this is slimy

Lemme at it!

After playing with some new toys, it was time for bed. Whew! What a big day!

I love my new play house!

Last One

I give you the last picture of Anna as the age of 0.


And now, the year in review. It went by far faster than I wanted.
